Sirius Minerals has launched its programme to create 50 new engineering apprenticeships. The company is now welcoming applications to select the first ten to start in September 2019.
The four-year apprenticeship to train Advanced Engineering Technicians will be run in partnership with Tees Valley training provider, the TTE Technical Training Group. It will focus on developing a sound knowledge of electrical, mechanical and instrumentation engineering principles and putting these into practice.
The first two years will be delivered both at the Sirius Woodsmith Mine site offices in Whitby, and the TTE facility in Middlesbrough. Transport will be provided to both sites. Apprentices will continue the remaining two years of their training with Sirius Minerals in preparation for long-term engineering technician roles in installation and maintenance.
Informal information sessions will be held in Scarborough, Whitby and Middlesbrough as detailed below, will give potential applicants the opportunity to find out more about the programme and speak to representatives from Sirius and TTE.
